Selecting a Table of Contents

A very useful feature of any documentation is the inclusion of a Table of Contents. This can, however, be quite demanding to create, especially when you have to set up a Table of Contents for individual documents. Even setting up Contents Lists within templates can still be very time consuming, when you have a number of templates to maintain. It is far quicker and easier to apply a specific Table of Contents template to your document reports independent of which report you are generating and which content template you are basing the report on.

Enterprise Architect provides two TOC templates - one for landscape documents and one for portrait documents - that have the appropriate styles, formatting and numbering system already defined. You can access these templates through the Table of Contents field on the General tab of the Generate Documentation dialog.

Your report developers can copy the two system-provided templates as the bases for custom Tables of Contents, tailored to the requirements of your organization. These customized templates are also directly available to you through the drop-down list for the Table of Contents field.

Notes

If you have a Table of Contents defined in any of your custom report templates, and you want to use it, just set the Table of Contents field on the General tab to <none>
